What is this?

This is a Reshade preset, and shaders pack for Red Dead Redemption 2 . It’s based on Reshade 4.4.x framework (customized version).
This preset and shaders pack would improve in-game images quality: a beyond ultra quality mimic.
That’s the reason why I called it as Beyond Ultra Mod.
3D stereoscopic mode (Top-Bottom) also included with this simple preset. It’s optimized for passive 3D screen only.

for best result (image-quality/performance ):
* if you have NVIDIA RTX2080 or higher, I would like to recommended to set your “Quality Preset Level” bar to the middle (10/20), inside RDR2 Graphic Settings.
* if you have NVIDIA RTX2070 or lower, I would like to recommended to set your “Quality Preset Level” bar to quarter (5/20), inside RDR2 Graphic Settings.
With these settings,  if you not pursuit very-high FPS number then the remain resource of your GPU can be use to gain higher image details by set “Resolution Scale” to 3/2 (1.500) inside RDR2 Graphic Settings.
